Oliver’s Nostalgic Nursery


The houndstooth pattern combined with several nostalgic items give the nursery a vintage feel.

Design Inspiration

I got the inspiration for the nursery from an old miniature tricycle that Oliver's Nonno found at an auction.  Without realizing it at first, we ended up with several other forms of transportation in there!

Decorating Style

I love piecing things together over the course of time and incorporating old, new and things already owned.

Favorite Items

Without a doubt, my favorite piece in the room is the old RC Cola crate.  My grandfather drove an RC Cola truck for many years, so this is really special to me and my family.  My sister found the crate while antiquing in Charleston, SC.
